The trained therapists at Urban Temple Studio Spa unwind tight spines, smooth skin, and detoxify bodies in the intimate studio. Clients melt into a bed in the private treatment room to the tune of their choice of music, from zen to smooth jazz. During each massage treatment, a therapist tailors kneads to fit the client's pressure preference while helping to improve circulation and detoxify the body.
Other purifying options include hydrotherapy full-body wraps, which purge toxins using herbs, mud, and seaweed. Urban Temple's spa packages offer themed days of relaxation, such as chocolate-centric treatments for 8- to 15-year-olds, indulgent massages and facials for adults, and romantic spa services for couples looking to bond without building an Ikea furnace together.
Licensed and certified massage therapist Sam Worley has worked at a private studio for more than two years and worked for more than nine years, dissolving stress at local spas. He holds certifications in techniques ranging from deep-tissue to Thai massage, all of which are now available at Massage Harmony, his private studio in Decatur.
Sam never begins a massage without first holding a consultation—a policy that helps him figure out which muscles to concentrate on. Once he's devised a treatment plan, his nimble fingers set to work improving circulation with gentle Swedish strokes, prenatal techniques, or even heated stones. He can enhance any of these sessions with aromatherapy oils.
SynChi Holistic Wellness Center's services live at the intersection of traditional healing techniques and scientifically inspired treatments. Crystal healing sessions, reiki, and reflexology all aim to restore harmony and balance by refocusing the body's inner energies. On the other end of the spectrum, ionic footbaths and pulsed-electromagnetic-field therapy channel technology in the pursuit of detoxification. Therapeutic massages relieve tension-laden musculature, and hypnotherapy can help reduce the urges that contribute to bad habits, such as smoking, overeating, and training a parrot to recite your Social Security number.
Many customers of Oh!La-La Salon.Spa assume the business's name is pronounced ooh la la, the widely known French phrase. It certainly can be pronounced this way, but we recommend pronouncing the first syllable as oh. Oh!La-La Salon has intentionally created this phonetic ambiguity to help its clients avoid cease and desist letters from the nation of France, which owns the rights to ooh la la (see French patent number A75630.1).
